This month I’ve gotten a solid start on migrating over content from my Google Drive folder. You’ll now find four new topic tags added to the library.
Lots of new content has been added to fill those bibliographies, so check them out! In particular I’m excited to share with you:
- Ajahn Maha Bua’s classic sermons, A Life of Inner Quality
- Dr Tucker telling us about the evidence for reincarnation
- And Curtis White asks us to question our dogmatic belief in materialism.
- Rupert Gethin encouraging us to reassess how we read the mythology of the Buddhist Canon
- Ajahn Brahm talking about the Buddha, supernatural powers, and his time in Thailand in this fun sutta study class
- Ajahn Geoff writing about the unconditional purity of heart
- Ajahn Sujato defending both the bardo and comparative studies in this compelling paper
- Sir Edward Dyer rejoicing in his virtue
- Lawrence Mills’ translation of Snp 4.2
- SN 1.71, which answers the question of when the Buddha would approve of murder!
- This lovely sutta (SN 35.247) which compares cognitive dissonance to six animals tied together: either with or without the “post” of mindfulness
- And, with calamity crushing in from all sides these days, The Mountain Simile feels more relevant than ever.
And last, but certainly not least, I am very excited to share with you this profound interview with Professor Charles Hallisey which has been added to Buddhism and the Early Buddhist Texts.
I hope you enjoy this month’s arrivals and, as always, feel free to email me with any thoughts or questions you might have.
